A Fort Bragg, N.C., combat medic who has been missing since April 14, 2012, has been declared dead, Army officials announced today.

Spc. Kelli M. Bordeaux was declared deceased May 20 by the Army adjutant general, Brig. Gen. David K. MacEwen, based on the findings and recommendations of a board of inquiry.

The board, convened to review Bordeaux’s duty status, was conducted by Human Resources Command.

The ruling does not presume that Bordeaux is dead, but allows for her benefits to be transferred to her family, officials said.

Bordeaux’s husband and mother were notified May 20 of the change in her status.

Bordeaux, who was assigned to the 601st Area Support Medical Company, 44th Medical Brigade, was last seen leaving the bar Froggy Bottoms in Fayetteville, N.C., about 1 a.m. April 14, 2012.

She was at the bar singing karaoke while her husband, Michael, was visiting relatives in Florida. Investigators have said he is not a suspect.

Fayetteville police say Bordeaux left Froggy Bottoms with Nicholas Holbert, a registered sex offender and bar worker. He told police Bordeaux had him drive her only as far as the entrance of the apartment complex where she lived.

Authorities have offered a $25,000 reward for information about her disappearance.

Anyone with information about Bordeaux’s disappearance is asked to contact Fort Bragg Army Criminal Investigation Command at 910-396-8777.
